Is marathon running dangerous for your heart?

I’ll admit breathing a sigh of relief when reading this finding (even though I’ve talked to my doctor about my long-distance running before I set out to train):

Marathon running is not linked to a higher risk of cardiac arrest compared to other physical activities — in fact, the rate was the same or lower in comparison. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that most people who did suffer cardiac arrest had undiagnosed, pre-existing conditions. One researcher noted that its the wide media coverage┬áthat’s created the belief that long-distance running is linked to a high risk of cardiac arrest.
